New iPod shuffle: world's smallest digital music playback device
Apple has taken something small and made it even smaller. That's right the iPod shuffle is now half the size of its predecessor and only takes up 1 cubic inch in volume. This half ounce wonder pack 1GB of storage, is made of aluminum (Steve's favorite metal?) and will last for 12 hours on one charge.
This start shipping in October.
The Shuffle no longer just pops into any old USB port, you need to use the included dock to sync which is kind of a bummer.
All of this for $79? Ok, it isn't that much of a bummer.
